County Judge’s Update

It is widely accepted, I might go as far as to say undisputed, that time and effort spent teaching youth yields the greatest benefits for both the youth and the community. We are privileged to have Neil Alexander and his work as Extension Agent, but we certainly feel the vacancy that Melanie Potter’s departure has created. We hope that the A&M Extension Service can soon fill her position.

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor:

Thank you to Jonathan Lord and Nick Taylor, two young men who stepped up to help their hometown of Richland Springs. There were many others helping, but too often we don’t see the younger generations stepping up. Jonathan continued their mission with the advice of his pastor, Bro Sam, and arranged for management of donated funds.

Phase I of this building project, which is divided into three phases, was completed in May of this year.

Dove Project Presentation at Fellowship of Christian Women

By Sharon Hayes

Ladies at the First United Methodist Church in San Saba are making plans for a Summer Picnic Luncheon next Thursday, June 28th in the downstairs fellowship hall. We give you a special invitation to come at 11:30 a.m. and fellowship with us around the tables. Our ladies in their 50’s will be treated this month, as well as guests, and they do not have to bring food. Think about some cold foods that could possibly be special at a picnic, and bring to share around the serving tables. A nursery can be available for preschoolers only, if you phone Sharon Hayes in advance, for arrangements to be made. Please remember to bring foods for your children, if you want them to eat during the luncheon time.

The Bend News

By Jo Price

Father’s Day is over and hope all the father’s had a very good day and looking forward to next year. It may have been the first Father’s Day for some new dads and hope it was a good one.

Rain is in the forecast for some and just hope that folks around the Bend get some much needed moisture.

With all the wind and the dry conditions it makes it very dangerous for anyone to be burning anything outside and if you cook outside be sure you put your fire out with plenty of water.

The Richland Springs Report

By Sue Ransom

I want to start this week’s column with a report about the Disaster Relief fish fry this past Saturday. Many thanks to all who participated, but a giant thank-you to Johnathan Lord for his excellent organizational skills. He used an enormous amount of his own personal time and resources to get this relief fund established. I know he relied on many people to help him, but his was the persistence that ruled the day. It was estimated that over 700 meals were served.
